Birth control that won't affect my mood

Hey everyone!

I've been on a generic version of Ortho Tri Cyclen for about four months now, and it isn't working out for me. I get extremely moody the first week of my pack, I think it's contributing to my depression, and I've been getting migraine headaches more frequently since going on it. I have the migraines under control for the most part, but the mood issues are really unbearable. I was wondering if any of you could suggest another pill or birth control form that would be less likely to affect my mood and make me depressed. I don't think it's hormones, but rather ortho's specific combination of hormones that is doing it, because I was on DepoProvera for a short period of time without any noticeable mood issues. I'm not sure if an IUD would be the best choice since I'm still young and haven't had a child yet, but to be honest I don't know that much about them. Any advice? Also a form of birth control that would also get rid of the migraines would be awesome, but it isn't a must since I have some pills to take for them and other coping strategies.
